What are Journey groups?
Journey groups are a heart beat of what ManMade in essence wants to be growing and mobilising within the Church. We firmly believe that peers meeting up with other peers will have a significant impact on the journey that your young lads will take throughout their faith life. Using ManMade material and combining it within the Journey groups framework, we hope to create space that over time will breakdown barriers, strategically create intentional conversation and help prompt the lads under your care to take life and faith serious in a credible but effective way together.
Key Tools used in Journey Groups
The tools used as the main elements of the Journey’s framework are great foundations for everything ManMade does through all it’s sessions. So signing up to a ‘Basic Journey’ subscribtion is a great place to start for the whole of the ManMade experience.
Peer to peer
Within the Journey framework you’ll learn as a leader how to best set up a peer to peer led group. Young lads want to fill empowered and trusted, this is a great way to start to give responsibility to the young men.
Many lads find conversations in a group hard, and going deep into feelings even harder. But there are ways to get effective conversation flowing. We’ve put together tips and tricks to help build an environment of conversation.
These Journey groups won’t work at all if not only the lads commit, but also if you as a leader don’t commit fully to them yourself. That might seem obvious, but in this framework explain the importance of why commitment is so key.
